Glidden House
Built in 1910, the historic Glidden House mansion has transformed into Cleveland’s only boutique hotel. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the French chateau-style mansion offers an intimate setting for special events, notably weddings. A majority of ceremonies are held on the grounds of the property with the Glidden House serving as a beautiful backdrop. The outdoor space is reminiscent of a park setting with lush landscaping, patches of ivy and mature trees.
Following a ceremony, guests are escorted inside the hotel for cocktail hour in one of the opulent rooms. For example, the Parlor is a warm space with a fireplace, wood paneling and hand-painted ceiling beams. “Wedding parties are able to use the entire venue, both indoors and outdoors, for the evening,” says Carrie Cooney, Director of Special Events. “You truly have the best of both worlds.”

Glidden House recently opened the Juniper Room, a 2,200-square-foot venue adjacent to the mansion, specifically for receptions. Reflecting the Glidden House’s architecture, the stone and brick building features French doors, hardwood floors, windows on all four sides, and a grand chandelier. To ensure the party stays in the venue following a dinner reception, the Juniper Room also has an area for the dance floor, band or disc jockey and satellite bar.
An attached brick patio, amid the prop- erty’s extensive gardens, creates a perfect space for guests to mingle outside during warm-weather months. “The Juniper Room gives us the opportunity to create dis- tinctive weddings with the perfect blend of indoor and outdoor spaces,” says General Manager Thomas Farinacci. “Since it is a heated permanent structure, we can accom- modate weddings in the Juniper Room all year long.”
A mecca for world-class cultural, healthcare and educational institutions, University Circle is known as the cultural center of Cleveland.
